    Hello

    UPSC conducts many exams every year.Some of them are ones in which you need and some of them in which you do not need.But it is all because of the criteria for that particular job and post.Like UPSC conducts IAS,IPS etc in which there is no such rule.While there is NDA which allows you to apply for air force and navy and army wing,and you need maths and physics in 10+2 for applying in air force and navy but any stream is applicable for army.

    So it is not about UPSC exams,it is about the recruitment of that particular field.

    For more details,visit the website of UPSC.

    The eligibility criteria for IAS is as follows:
    1.You must be a citizen of india.
    2.Your age must lie inbetween 21 to 30 years,However there is age relaxation of 3 years for OBC category students and 5 years for SC/ST/PD category students.
    3.You must have a bachelor degree from a recognised university.

    Thank you

    dear aspirant,

    It depend on which exam of UPSC you are going to apply. Like For Civil Services and CPF etc. there is no such a recomendation and for NDA, CDS and SCRA you must have Mathematics and Physics. but for most of exam there is no such a recommendation and you need only to complete graduation in any stream with any subject. But if you work on my opinion i will advice you to take Mathematics as your subject. Because in each exam of UPSC or any other there is Aptitude test in which Mathematics will help you to clear the exam.

    Eligibility Criteria For Civil Services:


    >>you must have completed or appearing in final year of graduation.

    >>your age must be within 21 years to 30 years on 1 August of the year of exam. there is relaxation in upper age limit up to 3 years for OBC and 5 years for SC/ST candidates.



    Limit Number Of Attempts:

    >>General category: 4 attempts

    >>OBC category: 7 attempts

    >>SC/ST category: No Limit




    Important dates of Civil Services exam in 2013:


    CSAT(Prelims):

    date of Notification:05.03.2013

    last date of receipt of application:04.04.2013

    date of exam:26.05.2013



    Mains:

    date of exam:01-12-2013



    You can apply for the exam online on following official link of UPSC:

    Good Luck......

    >> just graduation is require with minimum marks.

    >> but you have to face maths in IAS or other exam for more than 20 marks.
